For someone who has expressed such a poor opinion of everything French,
you're really hypocritical.
BTW Try being a bit more honest in your posts:

Why would this change my opinion of the French? It took them 60+ years to
fork over a medal to my uncle Tom. I had a bunch of relatives that fought
in France in WWII, that still doesn't make me a hypocrite. The French are
idiots but they might be getting on the right track with better leadership
now. Your reply is non-sequitur, you're an idiot...are you French?
========The main problem is that the French government keeps acting in
what they perceive to be the best overall interests of the
*FRENCH* people rather than the transnational corporations or the
Of course this puts a large knot in the pantyhose of the
transnational CEO's, hedge funds, etc. as well as the doofuses in
our state department and other policy making departments, who no
longer understand (or wish to apply) the model of "national
interest" as it applies to the majority of citizens and not just
the hidden agendas of elite/oligarchs.
What I don't understand is why it bothers anyone that is not a
member of the oligarchy. How have the actions of the French
taken one penny out of your pocket, one bite of food out of the
mouths of your children or put a knot on your head or shin?

My minor distaste for the French really has little to do with politics
directly. I have French customers and used to have French suppliers...they
are idiots and reflect poorly on the rest of the French.
What I'd like is to hear what your French customers think of you. Chances
are they probably have a pretty low opinion of you too, as do I. In your
case it's one you earned and also reflects badly on Americans in general.
I'm now to the point of pity for you. You must live in such a little hate
FYI, my French customer receive the same service as all and rate us at 9.3
out of 10. They don't know how to manage inventory and are constantly in
trouble with over/under stock. I anticipate their usages and kanban for
them independently of their ordering. I even call them to tell them they
are probable out of stock on something or their orders are too large for
their needs. YEP, they must surely have a low opinion of me and hate
America because of me. Damn, you're a fool!
When people like me were in the White House (back in the 90s) America was
thought highly of all over the world. Now we have people like you in the
White House and the world hates America. If you were not so bone headed you
would see the connection. But since you will never get it on your own I'll
explain it to you. The policies of the Bush administration and the actions
of the US military, in killing thousands of people in other countries, are
what has caused the hate for America. Having people like you supporting the
wrongheaded decisions of the "decider" is what has made the US a pariah
worldwide. It's simple really. Even you should be able to get it but
apparently it's beyond your comprehension. How's this? America be good;
world likes America. America be bad; world hates America. The truth is it's
not people like me who screwed things up it's you and your republican
leaders who did it. But you can't handle the truth.
This whole world would be better if Hawk (or, people like him) had been in
the Whitehouse! Not even Monica wouldn't have blown him and there wouldn't
have been all those problems. No worries about a sex scandal there! Of
course, the country would have had a "Cheetos" and "Big Mac" shortage and
competitive eating would be an Olympic event. The Whitehouse would be
renamed "The Whitecastle".
I once knew a guy who was so crooked that when he had a house built,
the plumber had to install the main drain line using elbows only. The
guy's turds wouldn't go through straight pipe!
I knew you would say that. Obviously you misunderstood my point, what a
surprise, huh? Not! Only someone as dumb as you would take it that way. What
